Wednesday 11th December 1940:bombers circled Raynes Park

Very cold, dull, but brilliant moonlight, frosty night. Walked up the Downs for a change. Night raid at 5.58 p.m. Twenty enemy planes came at intervals throughout the night from the south-east had a look at Raynes Park circled to the left went back the way they came, some followed by salvoes of shellfire. A belated bomber returned from the Midlands where the principal raid was and then followed all clear at 7.53 a.m. on 12 Thur.
